Default Video CARD question ??

Which is the best eVGA 7800gt video card for the money? The clock speeds of the lower cost ones are sometimes higher than more expensive ones which confuses me.

Thats all the cards that eVGA makes. I am not sure how much of a difference it makes between all of those cards but i would like to know exaclty how a card with higher clock speeds can be cheaper than one with lower clock speeds and everything else is the same.

Don't know why the one with slower speeds is most expensive, it's probably a mistake on newegg's part.

This is the best one:
It's the 7800GT CO, which has a special lifetime warranty that gaurentees to replace it for any reason (short of physical damage) free of charge, even if you kill it with OCing. I just ordered one to replace my 6800GT that had problems, should be here wednesday or tuesday. And why are you looking at a 7800GT when you have a GTX? :shocked:

so, umm, err yeah
